Deadline approaches for environmental funding
Greenspace improvement projects in East Lothian can now benefit from a share of an additional £270,000 following an extension to the Central Scotland Green Network (CSGN) Development Fund.
The CSGN is Europe’s largest greenspace initiative which seeks to transform Central Scotland into a place where the environment adds value to the economy and where people’s lives are enriched by its quality.
Organisations in East Lothian seeking to deliver strategic projects which promote healthier lifestyles and enhance the local environment within the area can apply for a share of the funding available to new projects.
Successful applications will join around 20 existing projects already sharing more than £600,000 previously allocated by Forestry Commission Scotland (FCS), Scottish Natural Heritage (SNH) and the Scottish Government in the previous round of funding.
Relevant projects include those which encourage regeneration and enterprise and help to join up the network, particularly in areas of multiple deprivation or where there are concentrations of vacant and derelict land.
